Pedal to the metal, baby! Houston driver Patrick O'Gorman was fired up over the weekend at the Texas Mile at Victoria Regional Airport, setting two speed records and breaking the one he previously set at the event two years ago.

Driving the 2006 Ford GTCoupe-2D for M2K Motorsports he used to set a record speed of 293.6 mph in 2017, O'Gorman broke that record twice yesterday, first hitting 299.2 mph and then three hours later got the car to hit 300.4 mph, a new world record for the fastest standing mile.

The event draws competitors from all over the world who get to test their cars on the airport runway to see just how fast they can go. Again this year was a spectacular event, and it returns in October for another run. Check out the record-setting run.
